Our lab primarily studies a transgenerational social stress based rodent model of postpartum depression/anxiety. We are testing the effectiveness of intranasal oxytocin and vasopressin in preventing/treating maternal and offspring depression/anxiety and social deficits. Related clinical work also explores the role of oxytocin in postpartum depression/anxiety, with a specific focus on Latina populations. Current research includes the impact of social stress and air pollution on immune factors, neural connectivity, and epigenetic neuroendocrinology.
